Why have you not read me yet?

Love Letters by Katie Fforde

Yes, delightfully romantic but not in a silly way. Yes it's got book references in there but it's not boring! And an artless, rumpled-but-charming writer hero who's just adorable. Here's the scoop:

With the bookshop where she works about to close, hopeless romantic Laura Horsley, in a moment of uncharacteristic recklessness, finds herself agreeing to help organise a literary festival deep in the heart of the English countryside. But her initial excitement is rapidly followed by a mounting sense of panic when reality sinks in and she realises just how much work is involved - especially when an innocent mistake leads the festival committee to mistakenly believe that Laura is a personal friend of the author at the top of their wish-list. Laura might have been secretly infatuated with the infamous Dermot Flynn ever since she studied him at university, but travelling to Ireland to persuade the notorious recluse to come out of hiding is another matter....

I have since taken to reading all Brit-writer Katie has to offer, with a passion! I celebrate her entire catalog. Katie - Keep 'em coming!
